HL Deb 06 July 1832 vol 14 cc150-1
The Earl of Minto

moved that the Bill should be committed.

Lord Kenyon

objected to going into Committee on so important a measure, in the absence of so many noble Lords who were interested in the measure, and had taken a part in previous discussions.

The Earl of Minto

could not consent to any further delay at so late a period of the Session. One noble Lord had asked him to postpone the Committee, saying he could not wait, because he would be too late for dinner. He (the Earl of Minto) replied, that he had lost many dinners by the subject already, and he really should not consent to any further postponement.

Lord Holland

suggested, that the Bill should go through the Committee, and that the objections might be discussed in a future stage.

The House in Committee.

Several verbal amendments were agreed to without discussion.—The House resumed.
